A study printed in the journal Natural Climate Change, led by Carl-Friedrich Schleussner from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, indicated that increase of only 0,5 C in global temperature could cause severe weather.

This scientist compared two periods from 1960 to 1979 and from 1991 to 2010 and has discovered that average global temperatures increased 0.5°Celsius. Also, the hottest summer temperatures and coldest winter temperatures increased by 1° and 2.5°Celsius respectively.

Schleussner said that there are real-life impacts of these increases and that they must rely on climate models to forecast the future.

In September 2018 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will provide a report on the research of the 1.5°Celsius target indicating the consequences that might be avoided. Eric Fischer scientist from ETH Zurich in Switzerland stressed that the 0.5°C increase would be significant.

In a different study published in the Writing in the Journal of Climate the level of warming was 30% higher – 0.174°Celsius per decade between 1976 and 2016.

This research was based on information provided by satellites.
